Investigation revealed that the Jeep had been stolen and that Guerrero was both intoxicated and in possession of marijuana.

Guerrero had also reportedly violated an emergency protective order by going within 150 feet of his ex-girlfriend's house.

Once in the backseat of the OPD patrol vehicle, Guerrero aggressively kicked the back-passenger side door to the point where the window would no longer function.

Guerrero has since been transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center.
